(E) to pay as much for jobs historically held by women as for a job demanding comparable skills



Ans: C

Solution:

A. 'that' is a co-ordinating conjunction and the construction "of both public and private employers that pay be the same for jobs " which has a prepositional phrase( of) followed by a conjunction followed by the object of the dependent clause just doesn't sound right. Grammatically I am unable to pin-point the error though ...

B. 'job' (singular) in the dependent clause cannot be compared to jobs (plural).

C. best option according to me althouugh the use of 'in' instead of 'for' looks out of place.

D. erroneous comparison, from the statement it is not clear what is being compared.

E. jobs and job getting compared again.

Not sure about this one. OA pls.

(B) it and prime it and paint it
(C) it, then prime it, then paint it
(D) the surface and apply primer before you

(E) the surface, apply primer to the surface and then paint it

My ans is in bold op A, although D looks good to me..reasons
opA:- To sand it and to apply primer....parallel statements..and i thnk pronoun "it" is ok...referring to surface only not the paint..
opB:- violates parallelism and looks awkward as word "before" is missing
opC:- violates parallelism and looks awkward
opD:- you has no antecedent..although looks good as it used the "surface" instead of "it"...
opE:- "and" shld come b/w surface and apply
